Superior Cutting Performance
SureLok® Electrode Technology
The innovative, patented, self-locking electrode mechanism eliminates the need for an installation tool and ensures precise electrode and tip alignment. Both the electrode and tip are stationary which results in a highly defined arc and precise cuts. SureLok alignment also means longer tip and electrode life and reduced operating costs.
Total Gas Management™
The SL100®SV 1Torch® introduces a completely new tip technology which eliminates the need for a separate plasma gas distributor. Each tip includes plasma gas ports uniquely tuned to optimize cutting performance at its rated current. Select from 20, 30, 40, 60, 80, 100 or 120 Amp tips to optimize your cutting. The result is Total Gas Management. Precision gas control, longer consumable parts life and better cut performance.
High Frequency has been completely eliminated from the plasma system. A patented component called the “Start Cartridge” sits between the tip and electrode. The Start Cartridge is in contact with the tip while the torch is inactive. When a start signal is given, air forces the cartridge to break contact with the tip and the pilot arc is started. This unique design allows the pilot arc to start without moving either the tip or electrode, resulting in better parts life, cut performance and reliability. The start cartridge is the only moving part in the SL100SV torch. Unlike the competitive torches, where the moving part is the torch head. If the moving parts of a competitor’s torch fails, you must replace the entire torch head. This is expensive, complicated, and time consuming.
If our start cartridge fails, it’s economical, simple, and quick to replace.
In less than a minute you’re back in full production.
Choice of Tip Shielding
Choose from two consumable styles:
• Extended Tip for cutting thin sheet at low power & narrow kerf
• Shielded Tip for heavier plate piercing and cutting
